Sacred Heart fifth graders were joined last week by students from St. Michael’s and Holy Family/St. Mary’s as they learned about fishing from Brad Olson of Cabela’s. The first afternoon was spent learning about fish habitats, biology and anatomy, and how to catch a fish. Students discussed, wrote, and drew pictures describing their past fishing experiences.
On Wednesday, the students took what they learned with them to Ryan Lake in Grand Forks where they experienced more hands-on learning such as casting techniques, knot tying, and fish identifying. The last hour was spent fishing in Ryan Lake.
Fishing Education Day was brought to Sacred Heart, St. Michael’s, and Holy Family/St. Mary’s through Cabela’s, the GF Park District, and UND.
